Questions and Answers
Q: Is this valance actually three separate pieces with the center not attached to the pleated side sections? I'm trying to avoid one extremely long valance which becomes cumbersome to work with.
Asked by:  - 5/31/2014
A: The Pull Up is made up of three pattern pieces. A swag, a horn and a side jabot. The swags are sewn together with the middle horn making up the largest part of the valance and finished. The side jabots are finished separately.

Q: If I were to use this pattern for the corner windows in my kitchen, which pattern would you recommend for a window seat (also in the kitchen). Or do you think the Claudine pattern with a modified jabot would work better for both windows? Thank you for your help!
Asked by:  - 6/20/2014
A: I love mixing the valances in a room while still using the same fabric. I would be happy but better equipped to answer this question if you could send me a photo of the two windows. Could you send them to and I will get back with you on my thoughts promptly.
Answer provided by:  
Q: I have a double (twin) window which measures 73 inches from outside edges (wood trim) side to side. I am wondering if my window might be too wide for this style valance. Do you have any other pictures of this valance on a larger window?
Asked by:  - 8/27/2014
A: 73 " would not be too wide for the Pull Up valance. If you haven't already looked at our photo gallery, here is a link to the photos that other customers have sent in of the Pull Up. There are a couple on wider windows.

Q: I'd like to make this pattern as it's pictured (mainpicture/gray ikat fabric)- without any banding. Can I easily do this?
Asked by:  - 9/14/2014
A: Absolutely. Just omit the steps for adding the piping/banding and you are good to go.
Answer provided by:  
Q: I am using the Pull-Up Valance pattern for my bay windows (2 single side windows & 1 double center window). The side windows are too small (24") for the pull up horn piece. How do I adapt the swag pattern piece A so that I can make JUST the swag for the side single windows (no horn piece)? Of course, I will add the jabots for all 3 of my bay windows. Much appreciated!
Asked by:  - 5/13/2016
A: You will want to cut a new pattern piece out of lining with both outside edges that are the same instead of one side (the side that connects to the horn) that slants up. You can do this by splitting the pattern piece up the middle or by folding the original pattern piece up the middle, then place the fold or the cut that you just made on the fold of the fabric so that you are cutting a piece with a mirror image on both sides. After doing this, you will want to alter the pattern piece to fit the size window or the size swag that you want to make. This is called a mock and to alter a pattern it may take a few mocks before you get the size just right. Good luck !!
